The annual Greenwich Campership Program, administered by the Program Division of the Department of Human Services, enables children ages 5 – 14 from low income families to attend summer camp and older adults age 55 and over to enjoy a summer program away from home. Camps promote a more positive self-image and healthy social and emotional adjustment. Full and partial scholarships are available to many local day camps, as well as, a few sleep-away camps in Connecticut.
HOW IT WORKS
To qualify for a full camp scholarship, a child’s family income must not exceed 300% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. This means that a family of four earning $7,500 a month or less is eligible to receive full payment of camp fees. Exceptions are sometimes made for families with extenuating circumstances.
Camp scholarships are funded through contributions from community
groups, businesses, corporations and individuals. Without generous support from donors, children can be left with limited enrichment opportunities throughout the summer. We need your support for the 2023 Campership Program. Please consider donating today!
